Three Viennese scholars in the country

Brandenburgisches Staatsorchester Frankfurt
Simon Höfele · trumpet
GMD Jörg-Peter Weigle · onductor

Johann Michael Haydn ∙ Symphony no. 25 in G major
Joseph Haydn ∙ Trompetenkonzert Es-Dur Hob.VIIe:1
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart ∙ Symphony no. 25 in G minor KV 183

Why didn’t write Mozart a symphony number 37, even though Ludwig von Köchel, in his famous catalogue, reserved the number 444 for it? The answer is simple. The work exists but is by Johann Michael Haydn, and Mozart only composed the initial Andante maestoso for it. He nevertheless passed it off as his own composition – the true authorship was discovered by Lothar Perger as late as 1907. However, symphony number 25, composed in 1773 and his first work of the genre in a minor key, is a genuine Mozart. The third in this league of well-acquainted men who were part of the First Viennese School is Michael Haydn’s older brother Joseph who, with his playful trumpet concerto, will elate us on this charming country outing to Chorin.
